ACRO L1000 is the first Desktop Headphone Amplifier from Astell & Kern.
The Dual-DAC implementation is re-designed to execute at its best skillfulness with the new AMP circuit design in the L1000. This new design allows the ACRO L1000 to deliver a master-quality sound with minimal distortion. The L1000 plays back bit-to-bit high-resolution PCM digital audio up to 32bits. A 32-bit CPU has also been added for the most accurate processing of digital audio playback, without compromising audio quality. In this way, ACRO L1000 can reproduce up to 32bit/384kHz PCM as originally recorded, with no down-sampling. The L1000 also supports native DSD playback up to 11.2MHz, without conversion.
There are some audio output options to fit your needs.
You may connect it to a universal 3.5mm/6.3mm jack, or to a headphone or earphone with a 2.5mm/4-pole XLR balanced jack. Unlike other headphone amplifiers, the ACRO L1000 features speaker binding posts offering a maximum audio output of up to 15W per channel at 4 ohms.
You can also connect the ACRO L1000 to your PC or MAC via Micro USB cable.
When connecting it with a PC or a MAC, you may need to download an USB DAC driver for your OS.
Sound output will be available through ‘Audio-Output’ option in your sound settings.
The package does not include an OTG USB cable in the package.
